About the Tour

This virtual tour takes Barnes members on an enchanted journey through the collection to see how artists create their spellbinding works. Learn how Cézanne paints still-life apples that seem to magically move; how Seurat conjures colors; how Pippin, instead of using a wand, makes images appear with a hot poker on wood; and how Rousseau summons lost loved ones on canvas. Plus, see Egyptian and African works that may have been used in the performance of spells.

Registrants will be emailed a link for the talk the day prior.
